Self-Checkout Screening System Will Speed Up Security Lines [Video]
The Qylatron, a DIY kiosk, is designed to take the place of five airport-style lines.
After the Madrid train bombings in 2004, Dr. Lisa Dolev realized that public areas like train stations, stadiums, and parks are susceptible to terrorist attacks, but aren’t equipped to put in screening measures like those in airports. She decided to design and build a screening system that was efficient, affordable, and reliable.
She founded Qylur Security Systems, Inc. and developed the Qylatron, a honeycomb-shaped self-service screening system that combines elements of the typical self-checkout set up seen in some grocery stores and basic design principles.
